Check video for 'fax receive set up' in similar model:

check the phone line is properly connected and you are getting dial tone and dialing facility from the phone line which is connectd to fax line.go to menu option and choose the option fax and set the parameter like auto receive or manual set the ring auto answer mode after certain ring. If it is in auto receiving mode it will receive the fax after the ring which you set.
try switching the fax with a phone and calling... that phone with your cell... see if you have static... if you have static on the line... then call your phone company and have them fix the line... or try putting a magnet filter on the line... next reconnect your fax and call... if your phone line is ok... and it just keeps ringing.... adjust the ring wait time to 2.... if thats doesn't help... you have a bad mainboard...
FAX RECEPTION THROUGH AN ANSWERING MACHINE: This mode is recommended for a shared fax and telephone line. To receive a fax if your All-In-One is connected to an answering machine: On the control panel, press Fax. Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the All-In-One does. For example, if you have set the answering machine to answer calls after 3 rings, set the All-In-One to answer calls after 5 rings. To change this setting on the All-In-One: Press Options until Number of rings appears. Press the right arrow (+) until After 5 rings appears. Press Select. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on. When a ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call. If a fax is detected, the All-In-One receives the fax, and disconnects the answering machine. If a fax is not detected, the answering machine completes the call.
Cannot figure how to hook up Canon MP830 all in one fax with remote answering machine. I can plug in phone line to send faxes fine but when hooked up in same hole and the phone rings it goes immediately to fax and can't receive phone calls. Maybe i have phone line hooked up in wrong place on my machine. The answering machine is in our master bedroom on the other side of the house. With my last a canon also i had it hooked up to go to fax after a certain amount of rings and it worked fine. That machine got fried by lightening and i replaced it with this machine. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong i really need this fax hooked up all the time for my business.
